While we have been in business for more than 100 years, CEMEX only arrived in the UK in 2005 when we took over RMC. Today, we employ 3,200 people over nearly 400 UK sites.


From early beginnings in 1906 as a local cement producer in Mexico, CEMEX has grown to become one of the largest building materials suppliers in the world. We produce, distribute and market cement, ready-mixed concrete, aggregates and related products to customers in more than 50 countries, and employ nearly 50,000 people worldwide.

In the UK, the origins of the business go back to 1930, when Ready Mixed Concrete established the country’s first ready-mixed concrete plant. Later renamed RMC Group, the company was acquired by CEMEX in May 2005.

The UK is the fourth largest operation in the CEMEX network, with annual sales of £1 billion, and some 3,200 people spread across nearly 400 sites nationwide. We have five business divisions, cement, asphalt, ready-mixed concrete, aggregates and building products.

We recognise that our business has consequences for people and the environment. It is our responsibility to minimise any negative impacts while also looking for every opportunity to maximise the benefits that flow from what we do. This website is just one element of our commitment to work with our neighbours.
